Editorial Reviews


'Research on civil war and peacebuilding has grown substantially in the past decade, but there is as yet little guidance for those willing to go to the field in the special conditions of conflict zones. This volume of case studies provides a wealth of ethnographic information about what to expect and extremely useful advice from those who have done it. Practitioners as well as students will find it immensely welcome.' - Susan L. Woodward, The Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA

'This sensitive guide to the ethical and practical issues that accompany the conduct of field research in conflict and post-conflict settings is an absolute must for those who care about the safety and well being of those among whom they work. Gracefully written, this collection of the reflections of remarkably talented scholars should make a major impact on thinking about the responsibilities of the field researcher in situations where their questions and conclusions can pose threats to the subjects of their research and to themselves.' - William Reno, Associate Professor & Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Political Science, Northwestern University, USA
